Behringer FBQ2496 EQ and Room EQ Wizard

Filed under: General — steve @ 4:38 pm

Background

I have two old TEAC speaker boxes that I replaced the speaker drivers in about 8 or 9 years ago with Jaycar 12” CW2130 polycone woofer, Jaycar/Response 5” CM2085 polycone midrange driver and Jaycar/Response 1” CT2010 dome tweeter. While the bass response was adequate in the lounge room where I originally put the drivers together, and in the following lounge room where they were placed, in my current lounge room, when driven by a DSE A2760 stereo amp the bass has been lacking. As I use these speakers for mixing computer created music a reasonable flat response is required. Presently I have been checking my mixes between these speakers and a 5.1 Logitech Z5500 speaker system to check the bass levels – as mixing takes me the longest in my music production switching between speaker systems to remix the compositions is slow and painful. So I decided to check the Jaycar’s response patterns using the free Room EQ Wizard(more…)

Just when you thought you had found what you were looking for it turns out that it wasn’t there, so you start looking again, and again… like one of those stress related dreams that go around and around in circles until you look down upon yourself and wonder just what it was that you were trying to find in the first place…

Dancing with the Tazmanian Devil

Filed under: ambient,Composition,drums & bass,strings,Synth — steve @ 12:15 pm

Triplets over four-four timing makes it feel a bit like a waltz. The growling sound reminded me of the Tazmanian Devil. Hence, ‘Dancing with the Tazmanian Devil’ is what this is called.

Bass, Chimes and Clarinet from Independence 1.5; Synth Pads and growling sound from Proteus VX; Harp and Cello from Miroslav Philharmonik; and, Percussion from Jamstix 2.5…
